Trump calls on Dems to pass immigration laws: 'Don't RESIST'

Source: The Hill




BY JACQUELINE THOMSEN - 06/24/18 09:32 AM EDT

President Trump demanded on Sunday that Democrats “fix” immigration laws in the U.S. and pass laws to tighten the southern border.




House Republicans are attempting to pass a compromise immigration bill this week after a hard-line measure failed to clear the House on Thursday.

However, Trump tweeted on Friday that GOP lawmakers were "wasting their time" on immigration and that Congress should drop the issue until after the 2018 midterms.

He seems to think that each party gets to pass laws by themselves. Or maybe he thinks that only Democrats do that. Whatever he actually thinks, it's obvious he has no idea whatsoever how the system works.

Trumpy sees himself as a Duterte, as a Putin. He runs the show no matter what the legal structure dictates. He wants to execute HIS desires without regard to anyone or anything else. AND, he has the full support of the GOP. They let him play dictator. The problem for the GOP is that Trumpy is using them for his own convenience. He'll turn on the GOP at the first sign of their resistance. Trumpy has his base of true-believing fascists who will pressure the GOP from below. He'll go with them.

rare exceptions such as Seung-Hui Cho when he committed the Virginia Tech shootings but he was here legally and in general illegal immigrates do not typically commit those types of crimes on that level.
Mostly with them its relatively minor and petty crimes but statistically they actually commit far fewer crimes because most of them do not want to risk being arrested followed by them being deported.

1. He said several times during the campaign "He alone can fix everything"
2. The Repugs have control of the Senate and House.
3. Repug President
4. Repug Supreme Court

But yeah, the Dems are the ones who are obstructing?

Families Belong Together—Attend a June 30 Event!

Donald Trump and his administration are cruelly separating children from their families.

But we won't allow it to continue. On June 30, we're rallying in Washington, D.C., and around the country to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents!

Trump and his administration have been systematically criminalizing immigration and immigrants, from revoking Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to ramping up intimidating ICE tactics.

Join us on June 30 to send a clear message to Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress: Families Belong Together!

Democrats should fix it?
The unpopularly elected destroyer in chief said last week that only Democrats can change the law with regard to separating kids from their parents and then caging them. Miraculously, he managed to change his mind a week later. Democrats need to “fix” it? Who the xxxx is in charge?
